Justin Bieber wants to be Banksy. He’s been marking up walls in Ecuador where he’s been traveling, and says this is his “new hobby.” He wrote “street art” on one wall, and has been posting his drawings on Instagram.

While graffiti laws may be more relaxed in Ecuador and other parts of South America, it’s widely considered vandalism here – especially in New York and California, Bieber’s home state.

If he were to take up graffiti art in California, the “Heartbreaker” singer could face hundreds of dollars in fines and jail time for vandalism.
